Managed to pick up a low mileage 2009 JCW [with Chilli Pack and Visability Pack plus full heated leather] in November and thought I better put up a progress thread.







Totally standard car when I got it which didn't stay that way for long, although I dont plan on doing too much.

Mods so far

Airtec Intercooler
Miltek Decat downpipe
Pipercross panel filter
Remapped to 280bhp
Meth Install
Turbosystems hybrid
coillovers
Rota Drift alloys
Channel swap


Anyway that's about it so far ,will update as and when things change.

You mean the screws on either side? They were a bugger! Ones I'd got them out though, it came off easily?

Don't suppose anyone knows the paint code for Brembo calipers, when trying to remove my rear diffuser noticed the rear brakes are a bit scabby.

I couldn't find any concrete information on the paint colour online. Chili Red seems to be closest match. I had a couple of chips on my front Brembos and touched them in with Chili Red ?

Time for the next mod on my list. I cant stand that massive wheel arch gap and need to get that sorted asap, question is which route to go.
Car is very unlikely to be tracked so a full blown adjustable setup is not really required.

Seems most people on here frown upon Eibach springs etc [ not quite sure why] so i guess that means either coilovers
or upgraded spring damper setup. Have been lookiing at the AP Coilovers as well as some other setups , any advice welcome.

Because over the years, springs, like the GTT top mount and FK Coilovers, were tried, tested and ultimately disregarded. Luckily we have the combined knowledge to save you from wasting your money when better alternatives are out there.

APs are currently the minimum recommended but go with the best your budget can afford. Adjustability isn't just for track setups
